  • The idler pulley puts tension on the drive belt, which rotates the dryer drum.
  • Due to manufacturer changes, this pulley will not fit the idler arm on some units. Those affected models require both the pulley and the arm to be replaced at the same time.
  • Kit Includes (1) 4-Rib Belt, (1) Greased Pulley, (1) Washer, (1) Tri-Ring.

If your model recommends W10837240 idler pulley and arm assembly, that should be ordered instead, as that could mean that the pulley alone may not fit the old idler arm.
